HAPPY EARTH WEEK!
How will you be celebrating Earth Week and Earth Day (April 22)?
I will be speaking (just long enough to cheer on Miami Greenies!) to an estimated crowd of 20,000 at the Green Apple Music Festival in Miami this Sunday. The Green Apple Festival has been a huge Earth Day event in New York City, and has spread to other cities - this is the first year for Miami - making it eight cities in 2008 - the largest Earth Day festival ever, anywhere. Bill McKibben and Robert Kennedy Jr. will be speaking in NYC. Find the festival nearest you to join in the fun: www.greenapplemusicfestival.com
Take a moment to let others know your green intentions by signing onto the national Earth Day map at www.google.com/earthday08.
The Institute for Heart Math - where scientists have found strong ties between our thoughts, hearts, mind, brain, and physical and mental health - has developed a simple, short meditative exercise that helps us achieve a greater sense of peace and good health. They've created a beautiful video to walk us through the steps to generate good thoughts and good health for the Earth to celebrate Earth Day 2008. Join in! http://www.heartmath.org/million_hearts/
HAVE A FUN EARTH DAY - WE CAN TURN THE TIDE!

So you recycle -- because your town makes you. Think that's all you have to do to live green?

Not anymore. The messages about "living green" and protecting the environment are coming from everywhere now. Despite your best intentions, you might not know how to boost your eco-friendly status.
Trish Riley, an environmental writer since 1992, is the author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Green Living: Earth-Saving Solutions for Every Part of Your Life."
Riley attributes the current green-living craze to Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth," his Oscar-winning documentary on global warming.
